Hey /e/Im a brainlet prole that recently got a scholarships to university, and Im wondering if there are any resources that you could recommend to improve general academic skills with an emphasis on essay writing. I've done a general scan for books and courses on libgen and TPB. But I wanted to get some advise with a left perspective. When I say brainlet I mean dyslexic and when I say prole I mean any unskilled job I can land (bar work, kitchen work, construction, etc.) My degree is in healthcare and administration.

I recommend reading Writing without Teachers by Peter Elbow. I would upload it here but for some reason this is the only board where you can't post PDFs.

There is actually a book by the horror author Steven King, On Writing. I've seen lots of praise for it even by people who are not King fans and I also read that the advice in it is not specific to just writing fiction.

Part of good writing is simply writing a lot. The more you write, the more mistakes you will catch, and the more you will learn to recognize those mistakes before they happen. Writing a lot is all about developing good approaches and habits towards writing. I work in a science and I have atrociously unproductive habits towards writing and I found this short, easy-to-read book helpful.

I can't concentrate on writing. I'm not interested in writing novel but I'd like to write a few essays and yet I can't concentrate for shit. Any tips?

a good university should offer free writing workshops, either as an official program for the whole faculty, or as smaller, student-driven initiatives by individual departments. also, make friends with people in humanities degrees that involve a lot of technical writing - tutoring is essential to seriously improving your skills.
